COSBY SHOW RETURNING TO PHILADELPHIA?
Published November 22, 1994
Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie is trying to lure Bill Cosby into becoming a minority partner. Lurie: "I casually mentioned it to him. He seemed interested." Last week, Lurie invited Cosby to sit in the owner's box at Veterans Stadium and before the Browns game, Lurie introduced Cosby to some of the players. Lurie "apparently sees Cosby as the perfect marketing and promotion fit for his football team." Cosby, a Temple grad, is an "entertainment giant who has impeccable ties to Philadelphia's minority community." Since he bought the team for $185M, Lurie has been looking for up to 10 investors to put up between $5-10M each. He has approached many potential investors but is "looking for the right mix" (Paolontonio et al., PHILA. INQUIRER, 11/21).
